Reprints Marvel Spotlight #5-12, Ghost Rider #1-20, and Daredevil #138. Johnny Blaze sells his soul to Satan to save his step-father but becomes Ghost Rider when the transaction is left incomplete. Ghost Rider is typical 1970s Marvel Comics. It isn't bad, it isn't good. It is bloated and pretty self-righteous at points (Jesus actually shows up to show Johnny the errors of his ways...maybe). Marvel had an interesting idea for a character that built off the gimicks of Evel Knieval but beyond having a possessed motorcyclist, they didn't seem to have much of an idea of what to do.
